Self-Portrait with Eraser

I drew the eraserfirst because I knew

it better than I knewmyself and because

it had been aroundthe block before me

and because it would,after having its way

with me, rub up againsteverything I'd ever loved.

Weep Holes

We build theseinto the dream-

house, holes drilledinto window sills,

so rainy daysdrain out. No

dream's completewithout looking [End Page 76]

ahead, withoutseeing ourselves

looking backat who—

dreaming—we'd been.


I gave youmy last stamp—send it back. [End Page 77]
